Bluetooth device

Pairing cannot be done. Move the Bluetooth device closer to

the system. Pairing may not be possible if other

Bluetooth devices are present around the system. In this case, turn off the other Bluetooth devices.

Connection is not possible. The Bluetooth device you attempted

to connect does not support the A2DP and AVRCP profiles, and cannot be connected with the system.

Enable the Bluetooth function of the Bluetooth device.

The pairing registration information has been erased. Perform the pairing operation again.

While connected to a Bluetooth device, this system cannot be detected and a connection cannot be established from another Bluetooth device.

The sound skips or fluctuates, or the connection is lost. The system and the Bluetooth device

are too far apart. If there are obstacles between the

system and your Bluetooth device, remove or avoid the obstacles.

If there is equipment that generates electromagnetic radiation, such as a wireless LAN, other Bluetooth device, or a microwave oven nearby, move them away.

The sound of your Bluetooth device cannot be heard on this system. Turn up the volume on your Bluetooth

device first, and then adjust the volume using VOLUME +/ .

Severe hum or noise If there are obstacles between the

system and your Bluetooth device, remove or avoid the obstacles.

If there is equipment that generates electromagnetic radiation, such as a wireless LAN, other Bluetooth device, or a microwave oven nearby, move them away.

On safety Completely disconnect the power

cord (mains lead) from the wall socket (mains) if it is not going to be used for an extended period of time. When unplugging the unit, always grip the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

Should any solid object or liquid get into the system, unplug the system, and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it again.

The AC power cord can be changed only by a qualified service facility.

On placement Do not place the system in an inclined

position or in locations that are extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking adequate ventilation, or subject to vibration, direct sunlight or a bright light.

Be careful when placing the unit or speakers on surfaces that have been specially treated (for example, with wax, oil, polish) as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm location or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lens inside the CD player, and cause the system to malfunction. In this situation, remove the disc, and leave the system turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates.

On heat buildup Heat buildup on the unit during

operation is normal and is not cause for alarm.

Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used continuously at a high volume because the cabinet may have become hot.

Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.

On the speaker system This speaker system is not magnetically shielded, and the picture on nearby TV sets may become magnetically distorted. In this situation, turn off the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on. If there is no improvement, move the speakers far away from the TV.

Cleaning the cabinet Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine, or alcohol.

Bluetooth wireless technology Bluetooth wireless technology is a short- range wireless technology linking digital devices, such as personal computers and digital still cameras. Using the Bluetooth wireless technology, you can operate the units involved within a range of about 10 meters. The Bluetooth wireless technology is commonly used between two devices, but a single device can be connected to multiple devices. You do not need wires to get connected as you do with a USB connection, and you do not need to place the devices face to face as you do with wireless infrared technology. You can use the technology with one Bluetooth device in your bag or pocket. Bluetooth wireless technology is a global standard supported by thousands of companies. These companies produce products that meet the global standard.

Supported Bluetooth version and profiles Profile refers to a standard set of capabilities for various Bluetooth product capabilities. This system supports the following Bluetooth version and profiles. Supported Bluetooth version:

O thers

Effective communication range Bluetooth devices should be used within approximately 10 meters (unobstructed distance) of each other. The effective communication range may become shorter under the following conditions. When a person, metal object, wall

or other obstruction is between the devices with a Bluetooth connection

Locations where a wireless LAN is installed

Around microwave ovens that are in use

Locations where other electromagnetic waves occur

Effects of other devices Bluetooth devices and wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11b/g) use the same frequency band (2.4 GHz). When using your Bluetooth device near a device with wireless LAN capability, electromagnetic interference may occur. This could result in lower data transfer rates, noise, or inability to connect. If this happens, try the following remedies: Try connecting this system and

Bluetooth mobile phone or Bluetooth device when you are at least 10 meters away from the wireless LAN equipment.

Turn off the power to the wireless LAN equipment when using your Bluetooth device within 10 meters.

Effects on other devices The radio waves broadcast by this system may interfere with the operation of some medical devices. Since this interference may result in malfunction, always turn off the power on this system, Bluetooth mobile phone and Bluetooth device in the following locations: In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes,

at gas stations, and any place where flammable gasses may be present

Near automatic doors or fire alarms

Notes This system supports security functions that

comply with the Bluetooth specification as a means of ensuring security during communication using Bluetooth technology. However, this security may be insufficient depending on the setting contents and other factors, so always be careful when performing communication using Bluetooth technology.

Sony cannot be held liable in any way for damages or other loss resulting from information leaks during communication using Bluetooth technology.

Bluetooth communication is not necessarily guaranteed with all Bluetooth devices that have the same profile as this system.

Bluetooth devices connected with this system must comply with the Bluetooth specification prescribed by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and must be certified to comply. However, even when a device complies with the Bluetooth specification, there may be cases where the characteristics or specifications of the Bluetooth device make it impossible to connect, or may result in different control methods, display or operation.

Noise may occur or the audio may cut off depending on the Bluetooth device connected with this system, the communications environment, or surrounding conditions.
